University Of Adelaide And University Of South Australia In Talks Of Merger University of Adelaide

It's an Aussie first, and it may happen right here in SA. 

The University of Adelaide and Uni SA are thinking of merging, hoping to cement themselves in the world's top 100 uni's.

The combined educational facility could be the biggest in the country, with over 60 thousand students and teachers on nine campuses.

But there’re several tests to pass first including the issue of jobs.
